    Start with a great classic nose, the start is also great. I would not have needed the menthol note that came along, but it does not pull down the good rating too much either.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Raisins, dried figs, black cherry jam, old leather, caramel and a bit of matches - a very nice classic sherry nose. Spices come after a while: clove powder, cardamom, cinnamon. If you can smell it for a long time, you will not get bored, it will stay aromasintensive for a long time.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Immediately with chocolate on the tongue - as if you were chewing in chocolate. Thick and creamy. Vanilla, cherries, dried figs. Menthol takes something of the depth. Herbal tea, tobacco notes, old leather. Menthol becomes more intense ...
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length, nougat chocolate, dried herbs, vanilla and menthol.

    Very nice dram.
    • Nose
      Beautiful, rich, sweet, sherry nose. A lot of sweet fruit.
    • Taste
      Nice full flavor. Sweet fruit also predominates here.
    • Finish
      Slightly creamy aftertaste.

    I am surprised by the 87,xx points.

    Excellent and old style Sherry Bunna with no real weakness and easy to drink. I would have guessed that it is even older. 

    Very nice!

    Excellent
    • Nose
      Dates, figs, raisins, butterscotch, toffee, light peat in the background
    • Taste
      All of above are there plus mild spices
    • Finish
      Long finish with all of the taste just fades out
